    Yep, that's right, Not Adrian Peterson, CJ2K, MJD, or any one else. It will be Jamaal Charles.

    This guy is explosive! He can run right through tacklers any day. Last night on his 56 yard touchdown run, you saw how he ran the fake right and then turned left, right on the Chargers safety and scored.

    I know that many think Thomas Jones, who is coming off his best season (1,400 rushing yards) to date will take the bulk of carries. But they are wrong. Don't get me wrong, I love Thomas Jones. He came from my favorite college (University of Virginia) and is still in his prime, but Jamaal Charles is the next leading rusher.

    2010 Statistics: 1698 yards rushing, 5.4 yard average, 11 Touchdowns

    Okay, This may be a little too fearless, but with all of his improved weapons, he should have a great year.

    I mean come on, Jordan Shipley, Batman and Robin, and Jermaine Greshman: that is a nice little hunk of receivers. 

    2010 Statistics: 4,521 yards, 23 TDs, 11 Ints

The Redskins Are the Beast from the East

    I really think this is the team that will go from worst to first in the NFL.

    They have nice playmakers on offense with Donovan McNabb, Clinton Portis, Chris Cooley, Anthony Armstrong, and Santana Moss. Also, they have a top 10 defense that can score against and abuse the offense.

    I mean, it's not impossible. The Dolphins went from 1-15 to division winners at 11-5 in '08 and the Saints went from 8-8 to Superbowl Champions last year. Oh yeah, the previously unknown grocery store worker led the Rams to be nicknamed the "Greatest Show On Turk," but that's another story.

    2010 Predicted Record: 11-5

Jahvid Best Wins Offensive Rookie of the Year

    He sucked, I mean SUCKED in his first career game. He rushed for 20 yards on 11 tries for a measly 1.4 yard average, BUT...he did score two TDs.

    He will help the Lions improve this year and will carry this offense while Mathew Stafford is injured.

    2010 Statistics: 1,100 yards, 4.3 yard average, 8 TDs

Sam Bradford Is Out for the Year By Week 7

    Sorry, Rams fans. Your team will not have a Cinderella story like they did with Kurt Warner, and your "Savior" will be either benched or knocked out by Week 7.

    If you look closely at his picture and take a look in his eyes you will see how his year will be. Sack after sack after sack after sack.

    Take some advice from me Sam, you have potential but stay on the sidelines for as long as you can until they fix that O-Line.

    2010 Statistics (until Week 7): 1,057 yards, 5 TDs, 9 Ints
